Esther Greenleaf Murer
Interview with Walter Ancarrow
Workshops and writing groups present the same problem. [I'm] a glutton for prompts and exercises, but rarely do anything with them these days. If I had to do an assigned one, I'd probably be unhappy. A Quaker quote (on speaking in Meeting): "If nothing flames, silence is my portion." I guess that's very close to sounding like I insist on waiting for inspiration—sometimes one must just dig in and write something. Still. Quaker silence is a wonderful thing—waiting to see what, if anything, wants to be said.
Whistle like a bird, with your syrinx.
Your larynx is mammalian, fit for jazz
and yodeling and tissue-paper-and-comb
I’ll fuck you in the ass and throat,
Aurelius and Furius:
both of you tend to play the bitch.
